If you don't like or you have problems with the new version of Android for Galaxy S4 (I9505), you can downgrade even if you flashed the new BL from Lollipop I9505XXUHOA7.

Instructions:
1. Flash this firmware into AP, untick Auto reboot

2. When pass in Odin, unplug cable, shut down Phone and restart directly into download mode

3. Reset Odin, put GNK2 Bootloader into BL and GNK2 Modem into CP, tick Auto reboot

4. When Phone restart (on Samsung logo) , shut down Phone and restart into recovery

5. Wipe factory reset, wipe cache partition, reboot.

Tested by me, and it works, no problems.


Download Links:
1. AP: Download
2. BL GNK2: Download
3. Modem GNK2: Download

MIRRORS:
1. Mirror MEGA - AP
2. Mirror MEGA - BL
3. Mirror MEGA -MODEM

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING HAPPENS WITH YOUR PHONE! DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!
I DO NOT KNOW IF THE KNOX WILL BE 0x1 AFTER THAT. I HAVE FLASHED THIS ON MY PHONE, BUT IT WAS ALREADY 0x1.

I suggest install this AP, and the other two files and then download every KitKat version you want!

I've flashed .PIT too on Lollipop, but for downgrade I didn't flash any .PIT, and I don't have problems!

Thumbs up Sincere Thanks!!
Hi!

Just wanted to say thank you for this guide - I'd flashed the Lollipop leaked ROM and I couldn't get WIFI to switch on, so was kinda stuck.

This has enabled me to go back to basics!

Thanks

Exclamation Credits for Phonandroid
I strongly presumed that these files are from phonandroid.com (Repack XEF)
You could at least give the origin of the tutorial.

Cheers!

No, I'm sorry, I just got the links from a romanian forum, and not from "phonandroid", amd the mirrors were uploaded by me.
